3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Ben L. Finesilver on December 5, 2004
Format: Hardcover
I am a Sport and Exercise scientist, who has designed a range of supplements. I was attracted to this book because one of the executive authors is Ira Wolinski. Wolinski was involved in researh, which showed that 170mg/kg bodyweight of L-Ornathine increased growth hormone levels.

( I later found out this was impractical, as it causes stomach upsets- I thought that possibly OKG might do the same thing, but with a lower dose. However I found out from the book that a trial showed it was inefective at raising GH at a 10g dose.)

I am glad I bought this book. It is crammed full of useful referenced material. Although it is expensive, it serves as an excellent research tool. Each chapter focuses on a particular supplement, written by experts in the field, with an overal summary and recommendation section, written by the executive authors. I would not recommend the book to those who are looking to find "magical" miracle supplements. This book is written, not to promote the use of supplements, but to give you detailed facts concerning a selection of supplements. (This may dissapoint those who are easily impressed with wild manufacturer's claims). I would have given the book 5 stars, had it not been for the high price (this is not a huge book)-

but I guess that is par for the course in regard to scientific publications. It is also the most recent publication of its type (contains more recent research. I will be mainly using the book to describe the mechanisms of action, by which the supplements and associated pathways work (this is very extensive)

I myself have compiled a large amount of research concerning supplements which have been proven to have ergogenic effects. Much of this research goes beyond this book. I am qute happy to provide help to anyone who is researching the efficacy of supplements. You can email me at: bfinesilver@yahoo.com
